We travelled to the Greater Vancouver Zoo on a wet and miserable day but that's where the grey ended. This place is amazing with (as you would expect) a well planned walking trail with plenty of opportunity to look at and appreciate some extraordinary animals....More

We have been members here for years. Our kids love every visit but we pack extra disinfectant. The state of the restaurant and toilet is just so third worldly. This could be a commercial success if only they maintained it a bit.

I would say be prepared for 4-5k if you want to see everything. It's flat and well maintained. You can rent a large pedal cart that fit two adults and two young kids but honestly walking it is best.
